Why is the trading software so important and what is the ‘ladder’ interface?

The ‘ladder’ interface has become a standard among professional sport traders. On this ladder you can clearly see placed orders and matched bets. One of the most important features of the ladder interface is the fact that you can place an order by one click of your mouse. It’s quick and easy to divide already made profit into other events- it’s called a ‘green book’. It means that we make money regardless of the outcome of the game. Below you’ll find the layout of the ladder interface.
